איך נסענו פעם
התערוכה ’איך נסענו פעם’ מציגה מבט נוסטלגי על אופני התניידותם של תושבי רמות השבים בדרכים החוליות ובכבישי הכפר. מיוצגים בה אמצעי ’התחבורה’ השונים ששימשו את תושבי הכפר בשלושים השנים הראשונות.

בין מייסדי רמות השבים היו משפחות שהייתה ברשותן מכונית אך אלה לא היו רבות. המכונית הראשונה בכפר השתייכה למשפחת שטקלמכר, שעלתה לארץ בשנת 1933, וזו הגיעה יחד עם שאר הרכוש שנשלח מגרמניה לארץ ישראל. את המשאית הראשונה רכש בשנת 1934 קואופרטיב ’אל-על’ לצורך הובלת הביצים למכירה והובלת המספוא לתרנגולות. בהמשך הגיעו מעט מכוניות נוספות, אך אלה התקשו לנוע בדרכים שלא היו סלולות עד תחילת שנות החמישים. חמורים היו חלופה מקובלת בארץ בשנות השלושים, בהיותם ’כלי רכב’ נוח, זמין, זול יחסית, ואף פעם לא שקע בחול. משפחות רבות החזיקו בחמור, חלקן אף הוסיפו עגלה שנרתמה לחמור ובעזרתה ניתן היה להסיע ציוד סחורה או ילדים. תוספת העגלה היתה מועילה אף ל’חמור עם עגלה להשכרה’. בשנות הארבעים והחמישים הופיעו גם אופנועים, חלקם עם ’סירה’ שבאמצעותה ניתן היה להסיע את כל המשפחה ואף את המזוודות. את הילדים שימשו גם אופניים.
טרקטורים היו בעיקר לחברי ’קבוצת הירקנים’ - רוב המתיישבים היו בעלי לולים, ולעבודה בהם טרקטור לא נדרש. לאחר סלילת הכבישים המרכזיים בכפר ברחובות המייסדים ובית העם בתחילת שנות החמישים, נוספו מכוניות רבות לאוסף המרהיב של כלי הרכב המשפחתיים של התושבים אשר את חלקם ניתן לראות בתצוגה שלפנינו.

התערוכה התאפשרה הודות לשיתוף פעולה עם תושבים וצאצאי המייסדים, אשר נענו לפניית צוות הארכיון, טרחו וחיפשו באלבומי המשפחה ותרמו את מרבית התמונות המוצגות בתערוכה.

Translation of the text on the sign:

How We Traveled Once
The exhibition ’How We Traveled Once’ presents a nostalgic look at the mobility of the residents of Ramot Hashavim on the sandy roads and on the village roads. It represents the various means of ’transportation’ used by the villagers in the first thirty years.

Among the founders of Ramot Hashavim were families who owned a car but these were not many. The first car in the village belonged to the Shtkelmacher family, who immigrated to Eretz Israel in 1933, and it arrived together with the rest of the property sent from Germany to Eretz Israel. The first truck was purchased in 1934 by the El Al Cooperative for the purpose of transporting the eggs for sale and transporting the fodder for the chickens. Later a few more cars arrived, but these had difficulty moving on unpaved roads until the early 1950s. Donkeys were an accepted alternative in the country in the 1930s, being a convenient, available, relatively inexpensive ‘vehicle’ that never sank in the sand. Many families kept a donkey, some even added a cart that was harnessed to the donkey and with the help of which goods or children could be transported. The addition of the cart was also beneficial for a ’donkey with a cart for rent’. In the 1940s and 1950s, motorcycles also appeared, some with a ’boat’ that could be used to transport the whole family and even luggage. The children also used bicycles.
Tractors were mainly for members of the "YarkanimGroup" - most of the settlers had chicken coops, and no tractor was required to work with them. After the construction of the main roads in the village on the streets of the MeYasdim and Beit Ha’am in the early 1950s, many cars were added to the spectacular collection of residents’ family vehicles, some of which can be seen in the display in front of us.

The exhibition was made possible thanks to cooperation with residents and descendants of the founders, who responded to the archive staff’s request, took the trouble to search the family albums and donated most of the photos displayed in the exhibition.
